Faux Chick'n Pesto

This week me and Danny are going "Pescatarian" and to kick it off I made some faux chick'n pesto. Pesto is a favorite around here and I figured it would be prefect. I bought these "chick'n" breasts the other day and thought they would be a great protein to add to the pasta dish.These babies are only 80 cals per cutlet!
I made a "skinny" pesto sauce, I call it skinny because I omitted the heavy cream. Just cook the pasta of your choice according to the box and the cutlets as well. Then make the pesto and mix!


olive oil
italian cheese
quorn cutlets

For the Pesto:
combine basil leaves and about 1/3 cup olive oil in a food processor and grind until everything is mixed then add the cheese. You can add a little or a lot depending on how you like your pesto.

Once everything is cooked I chopped up the faux chicken and tossed it all together, I have to say it tasted very much like chicken. It was tasty and filling. Danny is not a fan of faux meat and he was a fan! So that makes it a successful dinner :) Enjoy!
